the storm damage and he has not done any campaigning since sunday. now, mitt romney did take a day off great the campaign trail on tuesday. he had one storm relief collection event essentially in dayton, but he has to get back up campaigning. now he has been holding events in florida today and he had a softer tone in criticizing the president and has not criticized the president much. i get off of a convince call and he will pick up the tone tomorrow and criticize the president again laying out the contrast he needs but, look, mitt romney could not go to the eastern seaboard people would say he was getting in the way or causing too much of a distraction if he went to the storm affected areas. so, i do think they are doing what they need to do. >>neil: in the case of mitt romney he urges donations to the events to red cross or emergency supplies but you are right i don't think either can win. having said that, how is this shaking out politically? it is a disaster. generally i would assume the president at time of disaster, they rally folks to them. has this one? >>guest: well, let me point ou
